About this performance
One hour, no interval
Ever thought about going to an orchestral concert but turned off by the [stuffiness / etiquette / ticket price / concert length]?
Join host, and MSO cellist, Michelle Wood in the heart of the city for an hour of old and new (brand-new) orchestral music. Meet a composer, hear from a conductor, and watch a teenage sensation perform some of the greatest violin music ever written – Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto was ranked #2 by Australian classical music fans.
Arrive early, then stick around afterwards, for a drink in the foyer.
Whether you’re 18 or 80, if you’ve been looking for a way ‘in’ to live classical music, the hunt is over.
Clap whenever you want. Keep your phones on (silent). Grab a beer between pieces. And enjoy some music on a Friday night.
